Alzheimer's Prevention Registry Reaches Recruitment Milestone of 40,000 Individuals
Date:8/25/2014

PHOENIX, Aug. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Alzheimer's Prevention Registry today reached a significant milestone in the fight against Alzheimer's by enrolling the 40,000th volunteer interested in participating in major studies of the disease. Championed by Banner Alzheimer's Institute (BAI) and in collaboration with partnering organizations and leading scientists, the online Registry (www.endALZnow.org) aims to accelerate research by connecting healthy individuals who are committed to preventing Alzheimer's with scientists carrying out the studies.

"We're excited about the momentum of current prevention research, as many studies begin to recruit and the Registry plays a crucial role in overcoming recruitment barriers."

The Registry is unique in that anyone 18 or older with a passion for combating Alzheimer's can be linked to researchers seeking a cure or a new treatment. It was created as part of the API, an international collaborative launched in 2011 to accelerate the pace of research.

Alzheimer's begins developing in the brain long before any symptoms appear - a critical "silent" period during which scientists believe the disease could be slowed or even stopped. But researchers say that cutting-edge research can be delayed, sometimes by years, because of the difficulty of finding sufficient numbers of volunteers.  Clinical trials sometimes need to screen tens of thousands of individuals in order to find the hundreds of participants who fit the trial criteria.
